Savannah State Tigers (2-8)


Popular early signing period returns

(STATS) - The holiday gifts will be overflowing for many Division I football programs beginning Wednesday as high school seniors take advantage of the early signing period.

The three-day period was instituted last year and is designed to allow players who wish to end the recruiting process to sign their binding National Letter of Intent in advance of the traditional period, which annually runs from the first Wednesday of February to April 1 (the upcoming cycle begins Feb. 6).

As in past years, junior college players also can sign with four-year programs beginning Wednesday. Their signing period runs through Jan. 15.
